This exhibition, commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the passing of Afrobeat icon, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti features the works of world renowned album artwork illustrator, Lemi Ghariokwu.

Lemi was responsible for bringing Fela’s passionate words to life through his vivid album artwork, which is said to be rebellious, satirical, political and erotic. He is a genius in pictorial narration, realism and iconicity.

More than his illustrator, Lemi was Fela’s personal friend. Spending countless hours with The Man over the years, they forged a telepathic relationship that allowed Lemi to see what Fela was saying and thus, capture it on album sleeves for the world to also see.

This exhibition is a celebration of some of those iconic works of art, as well as an oral narration of both his time with Abami Eda and his journey creating his masterpieces.

NOSA: An art exhibition and Fela? My two favorite alté things in one pot. Wonderful!
